Sleek Pout Paints

First review!




According to Sleek: Pout paint is the new ultimate lip pigment that provides a blast of colour in one purse sized tube! The intensely saturated formula provides outstanding colour pay-off in just one tiny speck, and dries to a long lasting satiny finish. With a wide variety of Pout Paints to choose from you can mix up your very own unique shade using a combination of colours, or simply go for one stand out striking pop of colour.

I purchased the shades Cloud 9, Peek a Bloo and Mauve Over. I wanted Pin Up, but it has been out of stock on my last two Superdrug trips. Hopefully I can pick it up soon! They are priced at £4.99 for 8ml of product. When I bought these, Superdrug had a 3 for 2 offer on, so I picked up all three for just under £10.

These products can either be mixed or worn alone separately. I would suggest using a lip brush to mix them, or purchase little containers or pots to mix them in (they are available very cheaply at places like Boots and Superdrug). I would not try to mix with your finger since they are quite messy. They mix together easily to form new, unique shades. Peek a Bloo is used to warm shades, Cloud 9 to cool them. Mauve Over is a pinky purple shade, it shows more red in the picture but it has much stronger pink tones in reality.

The pigmentation on these is excellent, and I've had at least six hours of wear on them without touching up. With eleven shades to choose from, the possibilities are endless! I love the mixing ability to create whole new shades. I've heard that they are comparable to OCC Lip Tars, something that I cannot vouch for having never tried the Lip Tars.  They are affordable, especially with the 3 for 2 offer, and are easily accessible here in England.

I had a quick play around with the colours of the lips, in particular Cloud 9 & Mauve Over and Mauve Over & Peek a Bloo.


Mauve Over and Peek a Bloo. I have a thing for purple lipsticks. Actually, I have a thing for purple in general. I love this shade. It's a little more pink in reality. Apologies for my super dry lips.


 Cloud 9 and Mauve Over. A light pink shade. This might be the lightest colour I have ever worn on my lips. It would appeal to some but not to me. The contrast between the two shades shows just how versatile they are. They can go from dramatic to wearable easily.

Overall, I love these products. I love the uniqueness of them. I wish they weren't so messy in application, but it's a very minor issue. These are available on the Sleek website or at Superdrug stores.

Disclosure: I purchased these products myself.
